intimate bar off the beaten track, nice decor, but only two white wine served by the glass - a little strange for a wine bar! Menu looked interesting, but didn't try.

I guess I was expecting al fresco at its best when I first heard the name of the place so we set up for a romantic dinner. The atmosphere was lacking, the placing of tables are just too weird for a nice dinner with wine..I don't know. The salmon dish that we ordered was not that great so it ended... More

We had dinner and a few drinks, overall the night was okay but not what I was hoping for. The pate lacked seasoning, the mushroom quiche was a bit too oily. However, the wine was good and the steak was well cooked. Not that important, but the interior was looking a little tired and could benefit with a 'face lift'.

Had a lovely bowl of mushroom soup and focaccia bread for a late lunch. It was cosy and cool in the restaurant. Friendly and helpful staffs.

Had a good evening with the family here and really enjoyed looking through the wine list. Some of the food was great, such as the pate and the apple flan desert - but other dishes were a tad disappointing such as deep fried Camembert which wasn't that warm nor that fresh tasting.

We drop by for a chilling session. Ordered a cheese platter and warm apple filo pillow + a sweet wine (with recommendation from the staff). Delighted with the taste of warm apple filo pillow, absolutely perfect for a night out with drizzling weather out there. Price wise was reasonable too!

Having read other reviews and looked at the pictures put on the internet, I was expecting a first class dining experience. Unfortunately I was disappointed. My entree was scallops; looked nice on the plate but was dry and tasteless. My main was John Dory which was moist but the nut coating could have been more subtle. Desert was the flourless... More
